They have not won any of their last three games and Bayern is now a wise man to the top.
Sunday's match between the two sides in the Allianz Arena can be crucial to deciding where the title goes at the end of the campaign.

& # 39; Now it's really about getting fit, good to arrive. It will take time, we will give it to him. He just gives us a different input, a different way we can play.
& # 39; I don't think we've had this type of player since Lewy [Lewandowski]. He gives us the opportunity to be more flexible and to be able to respond to different scores.
& It makes us feel good. Now he needs to get better and get to know everyone well – we have to. We have to go with him and his strengths, but that will all happen over time.
& # 39; Paco [Alcacer] took off in the beginning, causing him to be injured for longer. Then the coach decided differently.
& # 39; As I said, Haaland gives us many opportunities to play football, but ultimately the coach has to decide who will be used.

The German defender believes that Lewandowski is one of the best snipers on the planet and is getting better and better with age.
Speaking during a recent interview with publication Bild together with the captain of England, Rudiger Lewandowski called Harry Kane as the most dangerous in the game.
The Chelsea man chooses r a somewhat left-wing suggestion and feels summer acquisition Mauro Icardi in Paris It is also in the conversation of & # 39; the world's best.
& # 39; For me Mauro Icardi, Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski are the best nine of recent years. Lewandowski seems to have gotten better this season & # 39 ;, he said.

Two goals in seven minutes seemed to have paid for Liverpool's hope of reaching the final, although Messi would undoubtedly exchange those goals for the horror show that Barca set up in return when they were defeated 4-0 in Anfield on perhaps the most memorable night of the Champions League last season
The bar was raised higher than last year, when Messi finished at the top with 51 goals from 54 games . He would have done it again, he had repeated his 2016 achievements when he scored 59 goals and 2010 when he scored 60 times.
